A HARDESTY&HANOVER COMPANY www.HardestyHanover.com <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />To: Paul S. Rosenberg, Mayor, and the <br />Board of Trustees of the Village of Rye Brook <br /> <br />Date: May 23, 2019 <br /> <br />Subject: 259 North Ridge Street – Subdivision, Zoning Petition <br />and Map Amendment, and Revised Site Plan Application <br /> <br />As requested, we reviewed additional and revised information and plans submitted <br />in support of the three-lot subdivision, site plan and petition to re-zone Lot 1 of the <br />subdivision into the FAH District submitted by Lazz Development (Louis Larizza), on <br />behalf of the property owner, Daniel Greto.
